What our customers are saying

David Moore, Obstetrician, Gynaecologist & Fertility Specialist

Being a FRANZCOG doesn’t necessarily mean 100% of my billings comes from the high-risk practice of obstetrics; I work also in gynaecology and fertility, both of which represent a lower claims risk to me and my indemnity provider. Tego offered something no other provider did (and I asked all of them!): they tailored my indemnity policy to my actual practice. Not only was Tego’s policy equal to the best policies on the market in terms of cover and facilities, it was significantly more affordable; more importantly, it was reflective of my actual practice.

Dr. Benjamin Olesnicky Anaesthetist

The cover with Tego was more comprehensive than my existing insurer and I was pleasantly surprised to see some great savings on my premium. As a doctor passionate about patient safety and research, it’s great to see Tego support some of the projects we are running at the Northern Sydney Anaesthesia Research Institute (NSARI). Tego are attentive and treat me like an individual – not just a policy holder.

Dr Alina Zeldovich, Ophthalmologist & Co-Founder Beamers

I was very impressed with the way Tego’s underwriters assessed me on my individual merits. Once I compared the cover with my existing insurer, I realised that Tego was offering broader cover at a more competitive premium. It was an easy switch and I have been really happy with their service.

FAQs

Anaesthetist indemnity insurance is a specialised form of insurance designed to protect anaesthetists against financial liabilities arising from malpractice claims, negligence, errors, or omissions in their professional duties.

Anaesthetist indemnity insurance typically covers legal defense costs, damages awarded to patients in successful malpractice claims, settlements, and other related expenses. It may also provide coverage for regulatory proceedings and disciplinary actions.

Even if you work in a hospital or medical facility, it’s still essential to have your own anaesthetist indemnity insurance. While the facility may have its insurance coverage, it may not fully protect you in all situations, especially in cases where you are named individually in a lawsuit.
